Brian Bates

- US Minneapolis, MN Pop / Adult Contemporary


Bio: I live, love and learn - like you.

I write it down - for me.

I write some more, fashion a song, sing it and record it - for you & me.

Then radio plays it - for strangers.

Then I travel & meet the strangers, to share my songs & stories - for love.

That's been my routine since 2005.

Not a bad... See Full Bio
